Guy Robertson

As previously announced, Guy Robertson sadly passed away on Monday 1st June following a tragic accident. His father, Past Captain Colin Robertson, wanted us to share the following with our members and staff:

Dear Captain,

It was immensely comforting to me and the rest of Guy’s family to have the support of so many Glasgow Golf Club members and staff at his` send- off` last Friday and the volume of  letters, cards, emails and phone calls has been quite overwhelming.  As a footnote to the amazing gathering outside  Kelvinside Academy, it would have delighted Guy’s irreverent sense of humour to learn that his funeral cortege was joined by a bin lorry which effectively held up further traffic until the brief ceremony was over.

Glasgow Golf  Club and the many friends he made there was a great source of pleasure to Guy and I have been proud to learn that he was able to contribute some of his natural enthusiasm and professional experience to assist Council and the Club where he could.

I would be grateful, should you feel it appropriate, if this letter could be relayed in some form to both the members and staff so that  those concerned will know how much their support has been appreciated.

With kind regards,

Colin.
